TRUMP SAYS ITíS TIME TO DENY ENTRY TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. CAN HE?
Powerline ^ | June 25, 2018 | PAUL MIRENGOFF

Posted on 06/26/2018 3:27:43 PM PDT by Lazamataz

Philip Rucker and Dave Weigel, two of the Washington Post’s most incorrigibly biased anti-Trumpers, lead off their latest editorial thinly disguised as a news report this way:

President Trump on Sunday explicitly advocated for depriving undocumented immigrants of their due-process rights, arguing that people who cross the border into the United States illegally are invaders and must immediately be deported without trial or an appearance before a judge.

Trump’s attack on the judicial system sowed more confusion. . . .

Rucker and Weigel are among the confused. Either that or they are hiding the ball.

8 U.S.C. §1182(f) of the U.S. Code confers on the president the power to turn away immigrants at the border. It provides:

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Rucker and Weigel do not mention this presidential power. But its existence undermines their suggestion that Trump would be denying “due-process rights” if he decided to deny entry to immigrants without granting them a trial or an appearance before a judge.

I always substitute the word "shoplifter" for illegal immigrant and see if the sentence still makes sense. It often doesn't.

TRUMP SAYS IT’S TIME TO DENY STOLEN PROPERTY TO SHOPLIFTERS. CAN HE?

We do need to put some serious pressure on Mexico. We need to stop treating them like an ally. They are an adversary.

As for a travel ban, I dont think another law is going to stop the illegals. They have to be physically stopped by us or Mexico.

That’s not the same as saying the US can turn back border jumpers. Once on US soil, they have due process and equal protection. The President can shut the legitimate entry points.

Do corpses have due process and equal protection?

He doesn’t need to. Canadians and Mexicans can be returned immediately. For som reason OTMs can not. I hope he is addressing that issue. Due process would apply to illegals who are already here and do not have a court order already.

Isn’t that the law?

Enforce the law.

If our laws state people have to apply for refugee status at an embassy or consulate, then that’s what they should have to do. I’d make sure they had to prove something more than an ex husband used to say things I didn’t like, as well.

Turn them right around and give them a swift kick in the seat of their pants.

If an army of foreigners gathered at the border and came walking into America would the liberal judges and the Supreme Court
demand that each individual be given "due process", be interviewed and given a court date before an immigration judge?

No?

What if they came across in small groups wearing civilian clothing?

Like they are already doing...

Once they are on US soil they are foreign invaders and should not have due process or equal protection. They are enemies of the state and should be treated as such.

If he says he can, the real question is WHY HASN’T HE?!
